IT CAN HAPPEN HERE Public Dialogue and Podcast: Stories from Imperfect Allies, presented by 2019 New Work Grantee, Judith Sloan
It Can Happen Here: Stories from Imperfect Allies Dialogue, Performance and Podcast Event. Hosted by writer/audio artist/actor Judith Sloan, with guest artists singer/actress Meah Pace, musician/performer Emily Wexler, choreographer/manager of Jamaica Performing Arts Center Courtney French, singer Priya Darshini, and musician Claire Marie Lim.
In a time of xenophobic national policies and a heightened discussion among progressives about issues of race, class, gender and ethnicity, this event aims to elicit and listen to stories that reveal ways that multi-ethnic, multi-racial collaborations address these issues with nuance and accountability. This live event reveals the behind-the scenes process of creating a play that deals with difficult dialogues. Audience members are encouraged to bring stories about dialogues that they have had that were able to bridge a conflict or address misunderstandings.
Bring your stories and ideas on how to be "imperfect allies" in a climate of cancel culture.
